Walter van Praag has Cystic Fibrosis and does inspirational adventures to raise awareness and funds for CF and encourage people to become Organ Donors.
This year Walter is travelling to the USA to get Phage Therapy to eradicate an antibiotic-resistant bacteria out of his lung. Phage Therapy is a serious contender to replace, or at least adjunct antibiotics treatment to fight antibiotic-resistant infections.
Here is the certificate I received! It is not entirely correct as I believe I would've only reached 4000 meters, or maybe 4050. Last night I saw the many photos that the rest of us had taken on the Via Ferrata section and on the summit. Makes me want to go back! I know I did the right thing, was glad I had the oxymeter to remind me of how dangerously low my oxygen levels were at that height. If by some miracle my lungfunction goes up to 70% I'll be back!!
It was possibly the hardest thing I have ever attempted.
